Welcome

Our church celebrates freedom of belief and
welcomes individuals and families of all backgrounds
and faiths. Unitarian Universalism does not advocate
a particular creed. We come together because of our
shared commitment to values and to ways of living,
not to religious dogma. See “What Is UU?” for more
about the long history and tradition of Unitarian
Universalism. The Strafford Universalist Society is
the second oldest in Vermont and fourth oldest in
the nation. Though the society was dormant for
several years in the 1980s and 1990s, we are now
growing again, meeting in the “new” church built in
1833 in South Strafford. We hope you will join us.

February Services

Sunday, Feb. 4th, 10 a.m. “Love and Justice
– Hand In Hand” led by Rev. Telos Whitfield

There are social justice movements that have inspired
revolutionary change and often they are grounded
in love. We will explore this illusive and all-powerful
force through ancient and modern examples. How
can we harness and share this energy as individuals
and communities?

Sunday, Feb. 18th, 10 a.m.
“Exploring Our Lunar Heritage”
led by Marissa Mazzucco

Marissa’s continues to explore her Chinese heritage,
and will bring some of the traditions around the
Chinese or Lunar new year (Feb 16th) and the
spring festival to you. 2018 will be the year of
the Earth Dog and I will provide you with a
snippet of what your horoscope says for the
following year. New years is all about family and
friends and reconnecting, so come and connect with us.

A 2017 UUSC story of hope highlighted the work of
Ursula Rakova, helping her fellow islanders on the
Carteret Islands of Papua New Guinea maintain
dignity and keep their culture alive, in the face of
re-location due to climate change. Throughout its
history, UUSC has advanced human rights and social
justice around the world, partnering with those who
confront unjust power structures and mobilizing to
challenge oppressive policies. Let us continue to be
inspired by this work and support efforts that create
lasting and powerful change.
